Property description

As a career designer and artist, I have taken great personal pride in recently renovating my home to reflect the beauty and character of this great Smoky Mountain region. Through the main entrance, a visitor will discover a cozy living area with a stone, corner fireplace and big screen television, featuring major satellite programming. The compelling views of the lake and mountains will lure guests through the sliding doors to the quaint yet massive covered porch, with a large gas grill and fireplace: excellent for outdoor dining and entertaining in the fresh mountain air. For preparing meals indoors, the unique galley kitchen, complete with dishwasher, has all the amenities for a chef. The adjacent circular dining table is close enough to expedite service and clean-up. The Master Bedroom offers a kingsize bed, adjacent state-of-the-art bath, and separate dressing area. For a private retreat with your early morning coffee, exit the Master Bedroom via private sliding doors to a comfy sitting area on the front deck, including stone fireplace. Additional sleeping areas include a Guest Bedroom with a full-size bed and bath on the upper level. Located beneath the main level is a private Sleeping Porch with a stone fireplace, a bedroom with two full-size beds, a full size bath and twin bed swing. A second bedroom features bunk beds. The large porch is screened for young family members to 'camp out' and have their own space! A Ping Pong table is provided.
Lakeside opportunities are endless at the boathouse including a pontoon boat, paddle board, small kayak, outdoor heated shower, upper boathouse sun deck with a covered grill for lakeside dining, suntanning, or access to swimming area. On this level, there is also a kitchen and wet bar. The lakeside area is conveniently located for dining under the stars and ending a fun day with S'mores cooked over the lakeside fire pit. The swimming and dock area are located in a private cove for swimming safely.

Other Amenities

  • The Green River feeds into Lake Summit, so be prepared for some cold, invigorating water as you have fun with swimming and water sports. Even the drinking water is refreshingly cold. Hopefully, you and your family will take time to sit on the dock at night and be lucky enough to see 'shooting stars' cross the mountain sky. One of my favorite things to do, is take a 'Cocktail Cruise' in the pontoon boat that I've included in your rental. If you head East, your cruise will take you to the train trestle, the dam, and then head West into a Spectacular Summit Sunset. Go slowly around Rose Island and Camp Mondamin, and you will end up back at the boathouse. Lake Summit is the perfect location for slowing down time and enjoying the precious moment....moreless

Owner info

About the owner: I have spent most summers here on Lake Summit, enjoying the days filled with water activities and fun with cool nights and warm days. I learned to swim here off the rock steps, as did my children and grandchildren. As a designer, I wanted quaint comfort and easy living with beauty out every window.

Why the Owner Chose Lake Summit:
If you have never been to Lake Summit (or even heard of it, for that matter,) you are in for an exclusive treat! The homes, cabins, and lake cottages here are passed from one generation to the next beginning with its inception in 1929 when the Green River was dammed to form this 324-acre body of water known as Lake Summit. It is still accessible only by a gravel road which probably plays a part in its remaining virtually unknown. The 125 home owners prefer the pristine lake to stay that way, so please don't tell our secret when you have to leave our Mountain Sanctuary. It is home to 3 of the most famous camps in the Country… Greystone, Green Cove and Mondamin.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Coming to 'the lake' as a young girl from Florida, I will always remember the cool mountain breezes and the beautiful green waters fresh from the Green River. The magnificent views of the mountains, after flat Florida (!) were never tiring. Since I was on my high school's Swim Team, I would daily swim across the lake…. of course, with my dad beside me in the canoe. Polly taught me to listen for as many birds that I could identify. She pointed out so many beautiful wild flowers (I'm sure that helped me with my flower arranging skills today!) Lake Summit is all about blending with nature. On the other hand, I was taught to fish, and we all went on daily hikes and off-road explorations.
